Talk about a debut. Brent Cleven threw out Luis Castillo in the first inning, and then he doubled and scored the only run of the game so far in the third inning. 1-0 Tigers.
The Tigers touched up Johan Santana for another run in the fifth run. Craig Monroe and Magglio Ordonez hit back to back doubles, and it’s 2-0 with Ordonez at second with one out. Santana is already up to 88 pitches.
Placido Polanco just drove home Brent Clevlen. Clevlen has scored two of the three Tiger runs. In the meantime, Jeremy Bonderman is having one of those incredible starts. Luis Castillo singled in the first and nobody has gotten a hit off of him since. Santana just got pulled and it’s 3-0 in the sixth.
